COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Jerome Smith ran for 118 yards and two touchdowns, and Syracuse used a strong defensive effort to beat error-prone Maryland 20-3 Saturday.

Smith scored from the 1 in the first quarter and added a 21-yard TD with 10:33 left to put the Orange up by 17. It was his third 100-yard game of the season and eighth of his career.

Durell Eskridge and Julian Whigham had interceptions for Syracuse, which also forced five fumbles - recovering two of them. The Orange (5-4, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) have allowed only three points in their last two games following a 56-0 loss to Georgia Tech.

Maryland (5-4, 1-4) has lost three straight and four of five. The Terrapins have been trying since mid-October to reach the six wins necessary to earn a bowl bid.

C.J. Brown went 21 for 40 for 211 yards and two interceptions for Maryland.
